    "This would probably be great if i was looking for a computer game or this was a game for my phone. Sadly, however, it is not. This is a PC game via the Steam platform, which is definitely not what i was looking for. "

    "Oceanhorn is an action RPG that lets you dungeon crawl. It is a well reviewed game on Steam. The graphics are nice and the flow is good. It looks like a very good game, but the problem is that the topic is for games for iPhone and this is a steam link. Because of that fact I can't say it fits the topic at all."

    "What sets Banner Saga apart from other role-playing games is that the decisions you make along the way will have an impact, even if just a small one. I prefer that over games that almost seem scripted. It makes the game more personal and makes me want to keep playing. Graphics could use an upgrade, though I assume that the design is meant to be purposefully quaint."

    "This game is okay for awhile, but eventually you reach the point where it's hard to continue without spending money. That's fine if you are willing to spend money, but I don't really care to give my financial information to the google play."

    "This app does not solve the problem of finding one of the best tactical role playing games on the iPhone. The link is to the Google Play store, and I am not sure if it is available on iOS. If it is, the game does have a very strong rating."

It's got a great story, amazing graphics, and is really easy to pick up and play. It's not horribly difficult like some other tactical RPGs I've tried.
